We were laughing out loud at some of the captions people submitted. Here are a few other favorites we have to share:

“When that Friday feeling hits before a long weekend 🤩🤩 let’s get ~wild~ 🦒🐊🐆🦍”


“Me listening to you but looking at myself during a FaceTime call.”


“When that first cup of @drinkreddiamond coffee kicks in.”


“What did the antelope say to the blade of grass? Nice gnawing you. ☝🏼This guy gets it!”


Caption Contest #2: Willow, a Super Friendly Reticulated Giraffe 🤪

Did you know a giraffe’s tongue is 18-20 inches long and appears purple, blueish or almost black in color? Woah.

And the winner is…

A few of our favorites:

“Me when I pass the classrooms with my friends in it at school”


“I’m longing for some neckfast blend red diamond coffee, and a good Neil Tongue record this morning.”


“My wife coming after my ice cream cone 5 minutes after she tells me she’s ‘not hungry’…”

“Your face after your mom makes you take one bite of vegetables that you hate in order to leave the table— *cue dramatic reaction*”


“What do the @bhamzoo, @drinkreddiamond, and @fullmoonbbq have in common? They are all spot on 😝
